Re: Orange's 5G Plan
Yes the forward thinking and trials will certainly give them an advantage in the market. And watching the technical aspects of the super tiny antenna development will most likely play a big part in making 5G actually work and the possible replacement for some fiber installations in urban areas.

Re: Orange's 5G Plan
Agreed. Despite all the uncertainties, Orange seems as organized and forward-thinking as any operator in this area.

Orange's 5G Plan
Having attended the same event as Iain, I thought Orange's 5G plans well judged: ambitious, for sure, but grounded in thorough prepration and guided by the results of field trials.

For progressive operators that want to launch in the nearer-term at scale, a good test and trial program is essential to efficient capex. You need a lot of "maybes" at this point.
